As part of my series about the “Five Things You Need To Be A Highly Effective Leader During Turbulent Times”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Michael Saulpaugh.
Extensive research suggests that “purpose-driven businesses” are more successful in many areas. When your company started, what was its vision, what was its purpose?
To provide the highest level of service and talent in event entertainment, we must create immersive experiences for our clients. Previous generations had left us an industry plagued by quasi-professional companies bolstering mediocre talent rosters to match. My focus was to bring top-tier talent back to the private events space and exceed our clients’ anticipated expectations. Whether it’s one of our Broadway musicians, office clerical staff, or event roadies, we demand their personal best at all times, to fulfill our company purpose.
What would you say is the most critical role of a leader during challenging times?
To hold one’s poise. Leaders need the ability amidst chaos or strife to remain calm and collected so they may step back, survey the playing field, and then act accordingly with conviction.
